Buzzfeed is under fire for publishing this video titled “27 Questions Black People Have for Black People.”

The video features – yep, you guessed it – Black people making sweeping generalizations about their own community and offering disparaging commentary about that community. “Why are we likely to engage in a new dance trend than we are to get involved in politics or opening a business?” one woman asks.

The video comes across contrived, and unfortunately, the people in it, insanely ignorant to those in their own community. Black Twitter was not here for the nonsense, blasting Buzzfeed and the Black folks in the video.

    Black people: instead of being our usual sensitive selves, we need to move beyond “it’s white supremacy’s fault” and ask what responsibility we have for our own success. Black men annually kill more black men that the KKK and white police officers combined. We need to self reflect and solve the problems raised by some of the 27 questions.

Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
